Widely sought efforts to reduce fuels that increase catastrophic fire in Pacific Northwest forests will be counterproductive to another important societal goal of sequestering carbon to help offset global warming, forestry researchers at Oregon State University conclude in a new report.Even if the biofuels were used in an optimal manner to produce electricity or make cellulosic ethanol, there would still be a net loss of carbon sequestration in forests of the Coast Range and the west side of...

 The forests of the Pacific Northwest hold significant potential to increase carbon storage and help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in coming years, a recent study concludes, if they are managed primarily for that purpose through timber harvest reductions and increased rotation ages.In the complete absence of stand-replacing disturbances "“ via fire or timber harvest "“ forests of Oregon and Northern California could theoretically almost double their carbon...

In an effort to determine the best option for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, scientists in New York have proposed a plan that involves capturing and storing carbon dioxide underground. The process, known as carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), may seem like a distant idea, but experts say the technology is available. One group of energy firms, academics and state officials want to see New York usher in the new technique as an example to the rest of the nation, and other big polluters...


Word of the Day
Cthulhu
  • A gigantic fictional humanoid alien god being described with a head resembling an octopus and dragon wings and claws, around whom an insane cult developed.
  • Pertaining to the mythos of Cthulhu and additional otherworldly beings created by H. P. Lovecraft or inspired by his writings and imitators.
